By the sounds of it, all the various restaurants on the island serve the same menu for tourists that visit the island.  The lunch meal started with a very tasty, spicy salsa-like salad - tomatoe, onion and cilantro served with bread. Kept wanting more. Followed by an amazing quinoa vegetable soup - one word - DELICIOUS! I was full already when they brought in the entree - fresh-caught trout - grilled and served with rice. The view from the restaurant was an amazing view of Lake Titicaca.Taquile Island Restaurant_MG_7211.jpgTaquile Island and Lake Titicaca_MG_7213.jpg

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
